Description

Built to sell and benchmarked for success I have this build running the new COD MW at 1080p 70fps on high settings.

My cost on these items (CAD):

I5-6500 ($0)

ASUS Z170-A ($0)

Asrock RX 580 8gb OC ($150)

Hyper x fury 16gb DDR4 dual channel ($0)

1tb WD HDD ($40)

Corsair CX 450M 80+B ($63)

Cooler Master Hyper D92 cpu cooler ($0)

Corsair Carbide 275R ($80)

Windows 10 Home ($20)

Total: $353

The $0 parts are ones from my old PC that I built 3 years ago. Since i was doing upgrades I figured this was an easier way to sell them.

Actual retail value if you buy the discontinued parts used in my area, and buy windows for retail price is about $1250

Ive posted it for $999.

I expect to get about $850 for it.

I'm sure it doesn't matter too much in a build like this, but I think the fans on your cpu cooler are backwards. Otherwise great build!

your gonna have a bottleneck with your cpu, try to have the intel core i7-4790k so your gpu won't be bottlenecked by your cpu

There won’t be any bottleneck. That’s a good pairing. Read this: https://www.gpucheck.com/gpu/amd-radeon-rx-580/intel-core-i5-7600k-3-80ghz/

But still. an I7 is a good pairing for, like, an rtx 2070.

No, the 4790k is on a dead socket. And there will be no bottlenecking. Also, why the 4790k?

Dead socket?! How dare you-- * stares at her computer *

(just a lame joke here)

My i7-4790K is still kicking and serving me well so far.

Otherwise yes, they stop mass production quite a while ago so it doesn't make sense to get the i7-4790K and especially its only for the LGA1150 socket and NOT the LGA1151 socket. So trying to force a Devil's Canyon processor on this MOBO is really meant for a LGA1150 socket.

Specifically for this Z170 is designed for Skylake (6th gen) and Kaby Lake (7th gen) with a proper BIOS update first. A 4th gen will definitely not work on a Z170 MOBO. User could upgrade for a used i7-7700K or the non K version with a BIOS update 1st and for a reasonable price but yes they should be alright regardless.

Yes, I agree. 4790k is not a bad chip at all, but the upgrade path is an issue. Yeah, although when you look at it this way z170/270 are also dead sockets, annoyingly. Wonder why intel won't make them cross-compatible.

I cannot say why either, just the way its been for Intel. About every two generations they become compatible for two gen processors closely released (1~3 years apart). I don't think they stopped this pattern since Nehalem (1st gen) and Sandy Bridge (2nd gen) 2008-2011.

Kinda annoying, isn't it?

Keep in mind the i7-4790K (4th gen, Devil's Canyon) is meant for the LGA1150 socket NOT for the LGA1151 socket. So Z170 MOBOs only support the 6th gen (Skylake) and the 7th gen (Kaby Lake) processors but a 7th gen needs BIOS update first if so.

Plus they will be alright. Bottleneck isn't a major issue but they can down the road upgrade to a used i7-7700 or the i7-7700K but again with a BIOS update first.

Or they save money for a couple or few years to come until Intel Comet 2020 or Intel Ice shows up in 2021~2022 (keep with a grain of salt, always subject to change) or further up or whatever they keep changing the name to... and by then we will have MOBOs, Radeon and NVIDIA GPUs, and new AMD CPUs too (maybe some more DDR4 RAM too since new MOBOs will increase speed a little more). It'll be geeky exciting, especially when DDR5 RAM becomes a thing.

We don't how much they purchased the parts nor when (plus the PCPP defaults are stuck on this partlist unless OP updates it or clarifies better). It's possible they purchased this for many months to build and sell I suppose. Like Ebay, r/hardwareswap, facebook and where else one can find a used part for cheap. Sure there's always something better but I don't think OP has it anymore from what appears to be said here. Whoever owns it now hopefully knows they have two options down the road. Buy a used CPU or save money for the next wave of new hardware to be released in 2020-2022. All depends how the user is using their computer and if one was content but the pairing isn't a problem.

No it's all good. You're not an idiot. I've misread or misinterpret many times but you are certainly no idiot. Plus it would help a bit more if OP ever clarified about the build. I am just taking a guess here and just aware of what is seen and said for now.

Tbh i was trying to keep cost as low as possible while still making it attractive. And then for the first time in like 6 years I installed windows on the HDD and nearly cried at how slow it was. Probably going to put an SSD in it now lol.
